Location 14/15 of the Canadian Rockies series is the picturesque Morant’s Curve. This curvy section of the Canadian Pacific Railway line, along the Bow river, was first photographed by Nicholas Morant. Morant was a long time photographer for Canadian Pacific and helped shape the railway to what it is today through his work. Not only was he a skilled photographer, but he was also very courageous. Working with the railway was a very difficult career, especially as it worked it’s way through the mountains and in 1939 there is a story of how Morant was attacked by a grizzly bear near Lake Louise and survived. He was a fascinating individual and this is why his curve has made it into this series.
